God’s Giving… G-R-A-C-E

Yesterday, I highlighted from my Bible reading Apostle Paul’s tribute to ordinary people who were not rich (and may even have been poor) yet gave generously to others out of a heart of love …

Then this morning I read these words in my Bible in the very next verses and it brought to my knees in thanksgiving and worship…

“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ that though he was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich!” (2 Corinthians 8.9)

I had just finished reading that verse and another came to mind… “He [our Heavenly Father] Who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all – how will He not also, along with Him graciously give us all things?!” (Romans 8.32)

Someone has framed it this way… G-R-A-C-E!

God’s

Riches

At

Christ’s

Expense

What an absolute, mind-boggling, display of generosity – it tops anything we might do!  I’m incredibly grateful!!  Oh, may my giving in some small way reflect both my Heavenly Father’s and my Savior’s gift!!
